i fully agree that candida is a symptom of an underlying issue. few people recognize the ecological balance our bodies have, mirroring the earth and nature. the earth has a diverse mixture of fungi, to 'digest' any substance imaginable. i believe the problems we suffer from are just a big misunderstanding, that this particular strain of plant life came to clean up a mess, not to kill us. in our blissful and innocent ignorance, we have continued to make a bigger mess for our little helpers to clean up. we have been working those poor guys on 24 hour shifts 7 days a week for far too long. candida has a place in the world, dont hate it for doing its job.
